Swain Destinations

Meet our Travel Experts

Swain Destinations crafts dream trips for our clients. Owned and operated by Ian Swain since 1987, we have been customizing the travel experience for over three decades. Our expert team of Travel Consultants have either lived in or traveled extensively within the destinations, which provides invaluable on-the-ground knowledge. We know the local hot spots, the hidden gems, and the places that leave an impression because we have experienced them ourselves. 

Swain Destinations has a clear and committed purpose; that travel should be a vehicle for positive change on both the traveler and the destination they visit. A trip with Swain Destinations is a trip that will positively impact our clients and our planet.
